My two kids (9 & 8) really enjoyed learning about Mesopotamia and doing the explorations. This has been a great new way for us to homeschool!
This curriculum has restored the JOY OF TEACHING ALL OF MY CHILDREN. Three. One in high school. One in middle school. One in elementary. You can go as deep as you want or just break the surface on topics. I am in LOVE. ♥️
This curriculum is a huge win for our homeschooling. Our kids actually ask to do school because they love al the hands on projects that go along with the units. We love the information that’s presented in the unit studies, the book suggestions, the YouTube links, website links and the hands on projects. We’ve tried many curriculums but this one is perfect for our learners. Thank you for making homeschooling fun for our family.
I was using another curriculum for social science and my kids were getting bored and asking not to do it every day. I downloaded the sample of Unit 1-1 and started it last week and we are all loving it! The hands on activities and fun explorations are just what we needed to make learning fun again!
I have struggled to get my son interested in history. Someone suggested Layers of Learning and I brought it up to my husband. He didn’t want to spend money on yet another curriculum that wouldn’t work for our son. I decided to take a chance-signed up for the newsletter, received Unit 1, and printed it out. It was an immediate win with my son. Within a few days, even my husband realized that we had found the perfect fit for our homeschool. We love how easy it is to use, colorful, and how it has so many choices of activities.
